Many believe that Toronto would have won the NBA championship for a second consecutive year if Kawhi Leonard had chosen to re-sign with the team. VanVleet asserted that they would have repeated as NBA champions and could've even three-peated. Leonard's departure was a huge loss for the team, but they could still put up a good fight against the eventual champions, the Los Angeles Lakers. While it is impossible to say what would have happened if Leonard had stayed, it is clear that his absence significantly impacted the team's performance.
Finally, in the "Spicy Questions" segment, Ibaka asked VanVleet if he would trade Scottie Barnes for Kevin Durant. This time, VanVleet did not hesitate in his answer. "No way," he said firmly. "Scottie Barnes is a young player with a lot of potentials." When pressed by Ibaka, VanVleet reiterated his stance: "I'm not trading Scottie Barnes for Kevin Durant."
VanVleet then turned the tables on Ibaka and asked him if he would trade Pascal Siakam for Giannis Antetokounmpo. Ibaka hesitated before saying yes, much to VanVleet's amusement. "You didn't even think about it!" VanVleet said. The two then discussed Siakam's development, with VanVleet saying that he thinks Siakam is still adjusting to his newfound stardom.
It was an eventful episode of "How Hungry Are You?". It'll be interesting to see if the Raptors can recapture the magic they had with Kawhi Leonard.
